What could be better than curling up in bed while playing catch up with your favourite TV series?

A good bowl of snacks of course! Here we’ve list down 6 healthier snack options for you to binge on, so be ready to toss that bag of chips away.


1. Breakfast food

Not only are they super easy to prepare and great to start your day with, but whole grain cereals make a perfect midnight snack too. Stay away from those sugar-filled, refined cereal however and go with natural, unsweetened ones.

Whether its sweet potato chips or apple chips, your options are endless. Slice your choice of vegetable or fruit thinly with a slicer and toss with olive oil. Spread them out on a lined sheet of tray and sprinkle Kosher salt. Bake for 20-25 mins in a 200°C preheated oven or until it has crisp up.


3. Salted popcorn

If you’re in the mood for something salty and crunchy, opt for a butter and sugar-free popcorn. It’s much lighter than the caramel versions and definitely much healthier than a salty bag of chips.

If you need to amp up your dose of daily fruit and vegetable intake, this should do it for you. Stack up your plate with a bunch of fruits such as bananas, apples, celery, carrots and berries and pour a 1/4 cup of nut butter into a dipping bowl. Choose nut butters that are made with 100 percent nuts.


5. Crunchy chick peas

Swap your favourite bag of Nachos with these protein-filled legumes that is just as tasty. Roast a can of chickpeas on a lined sheet tray that has been drizzled with olive oil in a preheated oven of 200°C for 40-45 mins or longer. Combine olive oil, chilli powder, cumin, lime juice, sea salt and cilantro in a bowl for the spice mix. Toss the slightly cooled roasted chickpeas into the spice mix until well coated.

Not a fan of whole chickpeas? Turn them into Hummus instead! This dip is such a classic and goes perfectly well with just about anything – fruits, vegetables, pita bread. You can even alter its flavour note according to your preference.
